                Good housekeeping service every day, breakfast from 7.00am, 24-hour front desk, free internet access, free in-room safe, in a very good location for public transport.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Staff very courteous. Able to leave luggage at hotel when sightseeing.

              • Family with children
                7.4

                Very close to St. Pancras International Train Station; friendly staff, personal service. Free internet access and newspaper.

                Only english breakfast; small room, bed and bathroom.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                The staff, the very well cared for plants, the breakfast

                We could have done with a little soap on the washbasin so we didn't have to reach into the shower for that soap. Also having a room with no steps would have been good for the 83 year old.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                All well and good for what you pay can't complain good clean room

              • Single
                7.4

                Staff were helpful and pleasant and room was very clean and quiet.

                polystyrene cups for use in the room, and no soap. No hot water in the morning at 7 am.

              • Single
                8.8

                Had a room (kindly provided with a triple) on the second floor and facing other buildings, so found comfortably quiet. Reassuring polite security on the door at night. Breakfast good. Great value and will stay again. Not for the hotel snob but you will pay a lot more for a bed for a night in London.

                Carpets need some replacement in corridors.

              • Single
                8.2

                I was in a lower floor room, which was quite spacious. The sheets and bedding were lovely, and the mattress was good. The shower was hot and had a strong flow.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                The location of the hotel is very good with Kings Cross Station in front of the hotel.

                The breakfast was not very varied.

              • Single
                9.6

                Very convenient location, comfortable rooms and great breakfast

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Very convenient for St. Pancras International. Room clean and comfortable.

                No lift or anyone to carry luggage. A consideration when pensioners, as we are, travel.

              • Couple
                5.4

                Good location. 2 minutes walking from internatinal train station of St. Pancras and Kings Cross underground station. Very simple hotel (but clean) enough for somebody who wants a bed and breakfast to stay for few days to visit London.

                Very small rooms. Only one towel per person (same towel to dry body, face and hands). No hand soap on the sink. English breakfast.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Very close to Kings Cross St Pancras station - very clean room, friendly staff and delicious buffet english breakfast to start your day off

              • Family with children
                9.6

                The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel and room was spotless and clean and so near to Kings Cross train station, we loved our stay in London and would use the hotel again.

              • Single
                7.0

                This hotel was a decent one for the area/price bracket it is in. Close to the station, wifi worked fine, and the breakfast was better than normal for this type of hotel. Would use again when travelling with the eurostar.
